Though he has been hard at work on Justice League, Zack Snyder has occasionally been offering Twitter updates from the set. Snyder's latest missive is a first look at Ben Affleck's Batman in a new, Tactical Batsuit.
Despite the darker, solemn picture worryingly inviting the same sort of memes that were sparked by the first picture of Affleck in his suit for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, hopes have been raised that Justice League will represent a lighter tone despite the high stakes involved. Indeed, the first look at footage screened as part of this year's San Diego Comic Con panel indicated that very idea.
The new movie finds Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, also known as Wonder Woman, recruiting other primary members of the Justice League, including The Flash, better known as Barry Allen (Ezra Miller), Arthur 'Aquaman' Curry (Jason Momoa) and Victor Stone, augmented to become Cyborg (Ray Fisher). They are going to need all the help they can get, especially since there is an intergalactic threat on the way. And, for now, at least, Henry Cavill's Superman is presumed dead by the wider world.
Justice League arrives on UK shores on 17 November next year.
